it's doin' something

i love it when my glass does something unexpected.
this is a 1 1/4" bean shaped, hand pressed lentil. the base color is cim's ghee -a wonderfully soft and weirdly reactive pale butter yellow glass not unlike opal yellow. the raked, swirly details are double helix psyche - which is generally metallic blue.

in this bead the yellow went all light butterscotch and lightly mottled and the blue came out an oddly lusterous violet grey with edge reaction lines of silvery mother of pearl white.

very pleasing. now, it i can only get it to do it again.
